Wyatts Are Your Public Liability Compensation Lawyers
Have you been injured by a faulty product?
Have you experienced a slip, trip or fall that has left you injured?
Were you the victim of a domestic animal attack?
Have you been injured in a public place or on private property, because of someone’s negligence?
Were you or one of your family-members injured at a playground or sporting field?
If you were injured in a public place, like a shopping centre, retail outlet, theme park, sporting venue, or any other public place, and if the accident was due to another person’s negligence, then you may be entitled to make a public liability compensation claim.
Those that manage public places have a duty of care to ensure that the users of those places remain safe. Walkways and footpaths should be maintained to protect against falls, products should be designed to be safe, and sporting fields and playgrounds should be free from obstacles that might result in an accident.
If a duty of care has not been met, and if you have been injured in a public place, then public liability compensation can cover both economic and non-economic costs:
Loss of past and future income
Reduced quality of life, pain and suffering
Medical, rehabilitation and other treatment-related expenses
Costs of household assistance and the provision of in-home care

A public liability compensation pay-out will depend on your occupational and financial situation prior to the accident, and on the severity of your injuries. While each claim is different, public liability pay-out amounts generally covers:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future loss of earnings
- Pain and suffering, and reduced quality of life
- Care and help provided by friends, family or any other individual
Public liability is a complex area of law, and you should not feel that you have to take this journey alone. At Wyatts Compensation Lawyers, you will be more than just a “case number”, and you will be treated with the respect and dignity you deserve. Contact Wyatts today for an attentive and personalised service.
If you have been injured in a public place, if you have been the victim of a domestic animal attack or if you have contracted food poisoning after eating in a restaurant, you may be eligible to claim compensation for the negative effects that these events have had on your life. Importantly, your legal representatives must be able to demonstrate that a person, organisation or business was responsible for keeping you safe, but that they failed to do so. In other words, it must be the case that they failed in their duty-of-care because they were negligent.
Public Liability is a complex area of law; therefore, it is important that you have an experienced and dedicated legal team to support you. Wyatts Compensation Lawyers are experts in compensation claims, and our team has a thorough, attentive and personalised approach to helping all our clients get the compensation they deserve.
Companies, businesses, landlords, councils, and many other organisations have public liability insurance to cover accidents that occur in the places for which they hold responsibility. Therefore, it is mostly insurance companies that cover compensation pay-outs, rather than the person, or people responsible for the negligence.
Wyatts Compensation Lawyers are highly-skilled at negotiating with insurance companies, and representing clients during disputed claims, and when litigation is required through the court system. Our team will work with commitment and dedication towards a successful outcome – the outcome you deserve.
